Laurel Hardware Ratings and Reviews
The food and food service was not a problem. However, the valet (Antonio specifically) was on his cell phone when we pulled up and on his cell phone when we left. We observed him move TWO cars while talking on his phone (NOT hands free!). 1. This is illegal. 2. This is completely rude. As we waited for our car another car pulls up. Everyone gets out and Antonio walks over and gets the keys. The driver asks something (could not understand) and Antonio says "Can't you see I'm on the phone?". The driver and our party looked at each other in shock. I went in to let the hostess know hoping she would at least acknowledge it wasn't representative of Laurel Hardware's customer service and was met with a blank stare and an "I guess I can let their manager know?" There was no regard to how I felt about leaving my vehicle in the hands of their valet service or acknowledgement that this is unacceptable! While I was inside, my car was pulled up. The other valet moved to the next car so I had to hand my tip to Antonio, who literally huffed at having to break away from his personal phone call (which he was selling something for $160 and the deal "couldn't get better than that") to acknowledge me. I asked him name and he said "Antonio". As I get into my car he is staring at me. He sees me take my phone out to take a picture of him on his cell phone while he's "working" and puts the phone down and walks to the side of my car. He says some expletives and then picks his phone back up once he sees I'm not taking a photo. I've never experienced anything like this...let alone from an establishment that supposedly is of a higher caliber. Huge fail in my book. If I were to ever come back I will uber or walk. But that's a huge IF at this point.
I think this is a great spot with great food ... but they always seem understaffed for the price point. Constantly having to flag down a server which clouds the experience. This isn't a negative reflection on the servers who are always knowledgeable and helpful ... but the management.
the service was the worst I've had in as long as I can remember. The food came out at different times with long periods of time meaning some people had finished their main course before others had even had there's brought to the table. The side of fries was given to us twenty minutes before the main meal meaning that they were cold by the time it came. No apologies, moody staff. The place was beautiful and the food, when it finally came, was great... just such a shame we couldn't all eat at the same time.
I've heard about LH before and went when it first opened but never returned. This night, a Sunday night, not very crowded was very enjoyable. I made a last-minute reservation. We got there they gave us beautiful couch seats overlooking the garden. And we asked to switch to a higher table they switched us with no problem.
Then when we asked the waiter for his suggestions he was generously kind in helping us create a fantastic meal for us to share.
The food was tasty, the service was pleasant and kind, and the atmosphere was great.
I say try it!!!
Food was fantastic, server was phenomenal... Only problem be sure not to sit by the doorway when it's cold outside. Waitstaff, manager and hostesses keep propping the door open next to our inside table on a 45* night making it feel as if we were sitting outside as well. Made our food go cold quickly and we were freezing by the end of dinner. If not for that problem, which seemed to be remedied for mere seconds before the next person propped the door open again, would've given this place 5 stars.
We had a 6pm reservation on Saturday as that was better for us than 9:30. We arrived at 5:55 and were asked to wait at the bar for a few minutes. The interior is dark and industrial with several booths and a lot of communal seating. As the restaurant was mostly empty this seemed odd, but off to the bar we went. Since we were told it would only be 5 minutes we waited and didn't order a drink. The staff seem to all be models, and I'm sure they asked for headshots when they staffed the place.
I believe they had us wait at the bar in order to make us spend more money and make their bar scene look busy. After waiting for 20 minutes a hostess finally came to seat us.
From the interior the outdoor enclosed patio, looks close in style to Cliffs Edge and we chose to sit out there. Unfortunately the tables are small and not meant for dinner patrons and the atmosphere could use some work.
We ordered some drinks and hoped that the food and our waitress would change our minds for the better.
We ordered some cocktails which were great. We also ordered some appetizers, the hamachi and the octopus. Portion size was terrible and so was the plating. Our octopus was one tentacle and our hamachi was pushed to one side of plate.
After our tasting bites we ordered main courses. The flank steak and the red snapper. My boyfriend ordered his steak medium so when it came out rare he was beyond disappointed especially since they slice their steaks and can easily see how they are cooked before they are served.
My snapper was decent but bland, I did like the hominy it was plated on though. Since our waitress didn't return. We asked for the bill and headed down the street for tacos instead.
Laurel HardwAre was a total dissapointment. From the look at me staff to the underwhelming food and overpriced cocktails.

Atmosphere is still great, food was average, server was horrible.
I used to love this place, it was an amazing scene, the food was creative and good and the cocktails were fabulous. I also love their other restaurant Ysabel.
First the really good: The hosting staff was amazing, i have a friend who just had a ear injury and needed to be specifically positioned to hear in that loud environment, the staff was very kind, had us wait and found a great table. They were a class act all the way.
The server was an absolute miss, she was distracted and forgetful and just never got her A game going. We specifically ordered crab cakes for our appetizer and they never actually came out. I cancelled them after our brussel sprouts and pizza arrived. When I mentioned this, she told me that we just put the order in and they come out in whatever order they are ready. I told her if she had told me that I would have adjusted my order. I don't know if that is the policy of the restaurant but nobody wants all their food at once & sophisticated palettes know how to order food in sequence.
The brussel sprouts were good but cooked in massive pieces so they took a bit of manipulation to make them bite sized. This is usually no big deal but Laurel Hardware has small tables and public seating so table space and movement can be issues. We followed the Brussel sprouts with a Pizza and the crust was so difficult to cut we had to request steak knives. The prosciutto was good and the egg cooked well, it was just uninspiring..
I want to send a shout out to the bartenders they were great as always and all the details were covered. Asking if I wanted a big cube for my good tequila, to remembering extra limes for my friend after her first order, the attention to detail was great and the professionalism was apparent. (I love good bartenders, nice job ladies).
The wait staff was a bummer, attractive and cool but they know it and act like it,
Hoping 4 better
Beautifully designed restaurant. Best to come for happy hour and drinks. Regular menu is somewhat overpriced in comparison to other places in the neighborhood. Good place to see a lot of younger women if that's what you want. Had to send a dish back because it just wasn't good...can't remember the last time I saw anyone do that.
fabulous dinner service and ambiance! we were seated outside under heaters in 50ish degree Feb evening weather and were warm and cozy. Our waitress were very attentive and kind and the food was amazing! The lollipop sprouts were so good they could have been an entree! My daughter had the special truffle gnocchi and I had chicken schnitzel that melted in my mouth! all in all worth it and would recommend it to all! yum
